Lakeside Hammers v Workington Comets - Friday 1st June

Recommended Posts

It seemed rather strange management from Workington. Only Proctor and Campton were in the points but no tactical substitution used and I expected Campton to have his full seven outings. He may have declined I suppose as only just back from injury but a case in point was heat 9, Workington off 1 and 3 with programmed riders Klindt and Bickley which would have been an ideal opportunity for TS (Proctor) and change of reserve

Hmm, I mentioned earlier to a fellow forum jockey that this meeting would only be close if enough of the Comets turned up.....it would appear that two wasn't enough?? :(

WWorky just didn't seem up for it to me. I noticed for example in one of the track grades there were 5 Lakeside riders on the air fence watching what the grader was doing, but only one Worky rider,. so they were coming out after the grade not really being aware of where the lines had changed on the all important first two bends. Most Lakeside riders were out early to prepare their gates, especally Richard Lawson, who was usually out straight after the previous race finished, while most ly the Comets were sitting at the pit gate until the two minutes was put on. The result was that the Comets were constantly being beaten out or the gate and 14 points from Lawson whose starts were especially good. 

This years Lakeside team seem to gell better than any team we've had for a good few years , but to put it bluntlyWorkington didn't really seem like a team at all, just 7 journeyman riders. 

Stll, it could well be the boot could be on the other foot when Lakeside try to cope with Workingtons track.

i tend to agree with you there . i cant see tony jackson not putting mason/proctor in for extra rides . so something tells me it was a fill in team manager or that whitehead bloke .

unless of course its been that long since we had a meeting to manage that the manager has forgot how he supposed to do his job !

+ why wasnt ty in ht 13 as  a tac ride replacing bach  ?

That could well be the case especially as this Lakeside team are just home track specialists, so we were told.

Another fantastic performance from Bach and Klindt!

What do you expect if they aren’t getting paid ? But they are definitely protesting by not trying and all the so call bike problems

Either your post's re payment of riders are mischief or there is some truth in what you post. Either way what are you gaining by broadcasting such unsubstantiated hearsay on here ?. If you analyse the logic , riders protesting by deliberately not scoring points will not increase any potential monies they may or may not be owed so is therefore not in the interest of rider, club or crowd levels. Either substantiate what you are circulating or leave it alone.The paucity of home fixtures has been been detrimental to the Comets and further evidence of how speedway repeatedly shoots itself and member clubs in the foot.

Poor meeting tonight but what can you expect against a team that only had two riders trying,Procter and Campton......Worky should really think about some changes especially at the top end...Hammers continue to impress as a really solid outfit that look like they are really enjoying themselves home ,and away,, the track was in excellent condition and there can be no excuses for Workys poor performance tonight.......

we have the excuses  ready  its a numbers game, are you ready and tonights lottery numbers are  1,5, 15,51, and your bonus bolls up is a stand in team manager @ leakside    number 8 . 

anyone having these numbers can contact workington speedway and ask how on earth you can get rid of them !
